–There are a few QBs that have great matchups this week such as Mitchell Trubisky vs the Niners, Deshaun Watson vs Phi, and Matt Ryan vs Carolina. But the guy who could be available on your waiver wire and has a better matchup than all of those top QBs is Baker Mayfield vs rival Cincinnati. The Bengals are ranked dead last vs opposing QBs in fantasy this season. It’s not Cleveland anymore it’s Believeland!

— If you’re in a deeper league or if you lost you’re starting QB like Cam Newton or potentially Aaron Rodgers, I would stream Dak Prescott this week vs Tampa Bay. Even though TB has improved in recent weeks, I still don’t believe in that defense. And the Cowboys are still in must-win mode. Dallas still needs to go out there and perform.

— It’s been hard to start and trust Derrick Henry this season, but over the last two weeks the guy has rushed for over 408 yards and 6 touchdowns. I think it’s time to start believing in the Titans’ ground game. Now Derrick is playing the banged-up Washington Redskins, who are really struggling.

— More signs this week are pointing towards James Connor not playing on the road vs the Saints, which means Jaylen Samuels will be the lead back once again. Samuels can be a matchup nightmare for opposing teams. He can lineup all over the field and can play multiple positions. For fantasy owners, that just means this guy should and can flat-out produce.

— Damien Williams vs Spencer Ware has been one of the biggest topics this week. A lot of experts still like
Ware, but I’m on the other side. I believe in the guy that has produced in back-to-back weeks now. HC Andy Reid will continue to find a way to keep Williams involved in this explosive offense.

— With Josh Gordon out, who will benefit from his absence the most in that Patriots offense? I believe Julian Edelman will still continue to get most of the targets, but keep an eye on Cordarrelle Patterson.
He is lightning fast and the Patriots love playing him all over the field.

–DaeSean Hamilton has replaced Emmanuel Sanders pretty nicely in Denver’s offense and he is a guy that could be that under-the-radar impact player who could help get you that league championship. I would also start all Falcons offensive players this week vs that struggling Carolina defense.
